  1. What is the objective of the pre-hack?
    Binance SAFU Pre-Hackathon aims to discover and match aspiring talents and minds to resolve a security challenge of the future. It is to help teams pre-validate and recognise great projects to give them a higher chance of succeeding in the main SAFU Hackathon.

  2. Is there a limit to how many people should be in a team?
    Individuals and teams of 3 to 5 members can participate.

  3. What if I already have an idea that I would like to work on?
    Having an existing idea you'd like to work on is great! But in the spirit of fairness, we would have to assess that you did not have existing product development work done prior to the pre-hack for you to be qualified for prizes. However, you can still participate in the pitching session.

  4. Is staying for the hack overnight compulsory?
    No, but it is highly recommended in order for you to have ample time to prepare your prototype and pitch.

  5. Are meals provided?
    Yes. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided.

  6. How do I get to BitTemple?
    Public Transport (easiest method)
